Sometimes it's good to have older things

  The locks on one of the cars stopped working ... or so we thought.   Turned out the key, which had been in use for more than a decade now, had worn out.

    Fortunately, it is a basic key ... so a trip to the dealer and less than $10 later, we were back in business.  Much better than the 3-figure price tag for newer car keys that contain electronic gizmos.

   (True story:  A friend's hubby was mugged.  The mugger demanded the car keys.  Now friend's hubby drove a beater  that was old enough to vote.  He handed over the basic key ... the mugger took one look, uttered a curse and threw it back at him.)

Glad to hear the key fix was inexpensive. I think ours might be a bit more if it ever gives us a problem.

God bless.
